Question about Samsung Tocco F480 - Pay Monthly Cellular Phone

1 Answer

SMS memory Hi My Samsung Tocco has only 200 msgs out of 500, however every time it gets to about 200 SMS, a msg box pops up saying I have to delete. But I am sure there is spare capacity. How would I fix this? I also do not have any multimedia msgs using up the messaging memory. Can you help? Thanks

1 message is considered as 120 characters or some thing like that .. so if it exceeds more than that then that single message is counted as 2 messages ...
as it occupies the space of 2 messages ..
and this memory includes the messages saved in the drafts,sent items,outbox etc

so due that you might be getting confused so just a have cross check regarding that ...

if you still feel that out of 500 it is not occupying correctly means there may be some firmware problem ...

this can be solved by giving the "restore factory settings" or "reset" ..

after you press the "reset" it will ask for "security code" or " password" input that ..

after the reset restart your cell once and then it will work perfectly ....

Cannot expand capacity, but you must delete your SENT messages. They are taking up the room and leaving you with only a small amount of space for your inbox. Check your outbox and sent msgs and delete them.
Good luck!! EJ Kudelka
